Today’s learning……..

Year 5 and 6 maths

How did you get on with the nrich challenge yesterday? Caitlin managed to get up to 98!

Complete this challenge called ‘A square of numbers’ where you will need to work systematically.

If you want to challenge yourself, why not find different solutions and justify that you haven’t missed any out. This is where working systemically is important. Then, you could make up your own problem which uses different operations around a square in a different order.

It would be great if you could email me (nataliebeatson@spherefederation.org) your own challenges and some of the children in school could have a go at solving them!

Watch and complete this video lesson.

You’ll need these questions for your main task. And, this link to the whole First News paper for the challenge.

Design Technology: mechanical systems

Follow this BBC Bitesize lesson all about mechanical systems and you could even have a go at designing and making your own moving toy! If you do, please take a photo and email me your picture. We will have a go at making some in school too- I will post some of our creations on the class news page.

When we are looking at bigger numbers, we talk about partitioning them. Learning about place value is important so you know how much each digit is worth. Watch the video about place value : https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/z8sfr82/articles/zw4g2nb

Look at the pictures and use what you know about counting tens and ones to count the objects.

Morning everyone. Here is the learning for today.

Maths

Watch the video about number lines : https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/topics/zknsgk7/articles/z3t94j6

Write calculations to show what is on each number line. The first one has been done for you.

Answer questions at end of video.

1. There were mainly five different coloured feelings. Name them all and how they made the Colour Monster feel.
2. What about the colour pink? How do you think that made the Colour Monster feel?

Topic – Living and Learning

Today is ‘Empathy Day’ created by  EmpathyLab.uk.

Empathy is a vital human force, creating happier children, stronger communities and a better world. We’ve never needed it more than right now. We’ll help everyone understand and experience the power of empathy through books. Scientists say that we can train our brain with stories, as the more we empathise with characters, the more we can understand other people’s feelings. Throughout the day, we’ll be running brilliant online events and fun home-based activities to help children read, connect and act using empathy. Authors, illustrators, schools, libraries, and families across the UK will be taking part and we’d love for you to join in! Join in here : https://www.empathylab.uk/empathy-day-20204bde2d62

Knowing that we are all the same but different is important for children. Here is a story to watch : https://youtu.be/hUrjb4SZnxg

Have a look at the pictures and think about how you are feeling today. Draw a picture of how you felt yesterday and how you feel today. Are they the same? Emotions change all the time and it is ok to have different emotions. They don’t last forever.

Good morning everyone.

Today’s learning…..

Year 5 and 6 maths: problem solving

Have a go at this nrich challenge. You could make your own digit cards to help you. Try and work systematically to find the solutions.

English/Living and Learning

You may have seen in the news in recent days a lot of stories about racism and inequality. There have been many protests all around the world about the tragic death of George Floyd in the US and the racism, that unfortunately people are still experiencing in today’s society.

Our Living and Learning statement this week is ‘I can see things from other people’s points of view’ and this is relevant when we think about people not being treated fairly or are voicing their thoughts and opinions when protesting or speaking about their own experiences of racism.

Watch this video clipRacism: why is it still a big issue?

Write a summary to show what the video clip is telling.

Music

Listening or playing to music can really help lift your mood. Follow this BBC Bitesize lesson all about singing with feeling.
